Backpack technical tests.
We carry out laboratory tests to validate every component: fabric, buckles, straps, foam and zips. For example, for fabric: resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour-fastness in UV light, resistance to washing, waterproofing, etc. Then, a test that replicates several years of use of the backpack is conducted to check the strength of the assemblies: the backpack is filled with weights and placed on a mannequin that replicates thousands of fast walking movements.
How is backpack volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
When stored for long periods, keep in a dry place away from light
At DECATHLON, our products are tested by a panel of users in the real-life conditions for which they were designed. At FORCLAZ, these tests are organised on the mountains, led by a team of engineers from our design centre, who are responsible for this mission. Our product managers, engineers and the entire team use the results of these tests to develop and create technical products to ensure the satisfaction of our customers
